Alright my Shark 'perts...how bad did I screw this up.
This is my 10 team local money league..keep 5
H2H Dailey Lineups
I ended up with
1B-Paul Konerko K
3B-Brett Lawrie K
SS- Dee Gordon
OF-Carlos Gonzalez/Giancarlo Stanton/Matt Holliday...all K
Bench- Howie Kendrick/Ike Davis
Strasburg/Pineda/Romero/Jimenez/Kuroda/Lilly/Colby Lewis/Stauffer/Billingsley/Gavin Floyd
daily lineups..no inning limit
I didn't keep a pitcher and filled my starting offensive lineup first. My plan was to grab 1 top 20 pitcher and then throw quantity at a decent quality every week. I would perhaps lose the loss catagory, but win the W and the K.
The only thing is, the league as a whole changed their draft strategies. Previously, I was the only team, every year, to go with a minimum bench and overload on pitchers. Well the league caught up with me, as I dominated the pitching catagories every season, and most everyone shortened their benches and drafted more pitchers. In a 10 team league, there were 118 pitchers drafted, this left me with slimmer pickings than in previous drafts. Plus, they actually did some homework and snatched a couple of up and comers a little earlier than I thought.
The first pitcher I drafted was Strasburg, who will have some limitations this season, but this was a look towards the future
I drafted Sale/Feliz/Chapman who, if they maintain a rotation spot, I will plug in to a RP spot for additional starts
Did I screw this up and do you think this strategy will actually work?
